Time is never a rush at this amazing gem in londrina, if you are lucky you will meet of the brothers owners who will spend time explaining their menu, pasta excelent, vino amazing, bread authentic, and the ambience...just like Tuscany where the brothers learned their cooking mission, si if you ever go to Brazil, this is a mandatory gastronomic visit.

Conveniently located, La Gondola is a great option for Italian food in Londrina. Cleanly decorated and elegant, yet not sumptuous, the place has a really nice atmosphere. The menu is wide.
To start up a nice buffet with cold and hot Italian specilties - from cold cuts and cheeses thru grilled zucchini and sardella - served on weight. My pasta, yet the sauce wasn't that creamy, as should be, but slightly watery, was wonderful and served in a generous portion. Service is corteous and very promt and waiters are always readily available when needed.
Wine list gathers a nice selection of average and superior Argentineans and Chileans, among others, however over priced, yet not outrageously. Be careful, though, about the wine service - as the wine I ordered was soldout, I was offered another one, from the same brand, but of an upper level, which costed me 60% more. In this case the correct and expected attitude will be either offering the guest something at the same price level or bring the guest the wine list back.

This is a very good restaurant next to the airport. It serves delicious Italian food, not inexpensive, but good. You have to book in advance or you will wait in line. Chicken % vegetables are light and good there.

I am travelling to Londrina quite often for business and I always have a meal in La Gondola while I am there. I can find excellent quality and good atmosphere in this restaurant.
The design is neat and comfortable and the service they provide is in line with that.
If I go there by myself (it has actually happened quite a few times..) I sit at the counter which is just in front of the wine cellar which is really nice. It offers you the possibility to choose any wine, mainly south americans though but if can find Italians, French wines as well.
If you prefer beer to wine, I suggest you to have a 33 Beer, I really like it. It's a Brazilian beer brewed in Parana' state, it's a really local product..
The buffet is good, I am usually having a starter from it. You better try the cheese with garlic, i love it..The menu is "italian cuisine oriented" as the owner is frequently travelling to Italy and Europe for new ideas,disches...My suggestion for the main course is the "Fillet La Gondola".
